Just because Jim Borgman retired from The Cincinnati Enquirer doesn’t mean his wit-infused pen is going dry. 


The Pulitzer Prize-winning political cartoonist remains busy these days with his syndicated Zits comic strip, a collaboration with writer Jerry Scott that has flourished since its inception in 1997. 

The duo’s latest collection in book form, Zits En Concert, was published in October and again focuses on the exploits of Jeremy Duncan, a high school student and aspiring Rock god whose emotional and physical issues are portrayed with humor and insight.
